Pizza is one of the most popular food options in the U.S. A brand to consider investing in is DoubleDave Pizzaworks. The brand was founded in 1984 and began franchising in 1997. Since then, the brand has expanded to dozens of locations across Texas and Oklahoma. The pizza business has always been about investing in people, creating opportunities, and fostering great corporate leadership. DoubleDave’s food starts with a custom-mixed, locally milled, proprietary flour recipe to create a perfectly crusty foundation for pizza pies, and the brand spreads a custom formulated blend of tomato sauce and spices, farm fresh from the heart of California tomato country. In addition to pizza, the brand's menu includes Peproni Rolls, Stromboli varieties, sandwiches, and desserts as well as a broad selection of salad greens, and local and regional craft beers or soft drinks. The brand stands out with one significant difference: it’s more than the Pizza—it’s the Pizzaworks!
In terms of the brand's culture, it has a cheeky brand personality, updated design, and fun atmosphere, which were created to bring back the classic pizza joint feel while remaining modern and relevant. The brand is committed to giving back to the local community by supporting school teams, clubs, and programs, and local charitable causes. DoubleDaves also participates in school lunch programs, has discounts for large employers, and often donates food for worthy causes. Franchisees benefit from strong support, community, and passion from the franchisor. In terms of the initial investment, it ranges between $132,500 to $556,500. This depends on the layout you choose.
